The Best and Easiest Type of Meditation

Devotee: What should you be thinking about when you’re chanting? What do you think about when you’re chanting?
Prabhupada: Chanting? You simply hear. When you say “Hare Krsna,” you try to hear the very sound, “Hare Krsna.” That’s all.

Nothing more. This is meditation. Your tongue and your ear should be engaged in sounding this transcendental vibration, “Hare Krsna.” Best meditation. This is also accepted in Bhagavadgîta: the best meditation. You don’t keep your mind elsewhere. You keep your mind on the chanting, “Hare Krsna,” and hear.

So this is responsive. When I was chanting, you were hearing; when you were chanting, I was hearing. So it is exchange. I hear your chanting, you hear my chanting. This is the process. So there is no possibility of thinking anything else. Best and the easiest type of meditation.
